Curriculum Vitae

Artist's Statement





Light is the basis of all life. Photography is described as light writing. Hence it becomes the written language of light. The light etched image of itself, the new hieroglyphics, the story teller of now for the future, the history of life. It is good to be an interpreter in that history.
